Child Safety and Awareness

Every child has the right to be safe. It is in the charter of Universal Kempo-Karate Schools Association that we must give back to the communities in which we live. One way this shall be done is by sharing our knowledge and expertise as it relates to a child’s personal safety. By way of the martial arts, we must educate the families and children in our communities on the Escape, Control and Destroy Safety Techniques that can and must be utilized to ensure each child’s well being. It is our objective and responsibility to share our “success systems” of awareness and self protection with our fellow community members. We, as experts in this field, must do everything in our power to ensure that our next generation of leaders has every opportunity to pursue long and productive lives. We are making a difference, one child at a time.

Child Fitness

A growing concern today is the national problem of obesity in children and adults. This is a serious health issue and is a threat to the future of our next generation. We are fortunate to have the facilities and the athletic knowledge to be a tremendous resource in the fight to solve this problem. The Universal Kempo-Karate Schools Association Physical Requirements is a simple routine consisting of a combination of push-ups, sit-ups and jumping rope that progressively becomes more challenging as the student grows stronger. The secret is to have these activities incorporated into the school curriculum by setting aside 6 to 8 minutes of each class to complete this routine. This is a great opportunity for all martial arts schools to demonstrate to the public that they are making a serious contribution to help our children AVOID the health challenges that result from obesity.

Women's and Adult Personal Protection

Every 3 seconds in the United States there is a property theft. Every 30 seconds there is a physical assault. Every 60 seconds there is an armed robbery. One murder occurs every 32 seconds. Did you know that by this time tomorrow 1,100 people will come face to face with a firearm and 400 of those people will not walk away. According to the Colorado Springs Police Department, there were over 5,000 violent crimes in Colorado Springs last year. Violent crimes are defined as murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault. There were 286 rape cases in the city of Colorado Springs last year and there are 186 registered sex offenders in the 80920 zip code. These are startling statistics.
